Summary
  • "A memoir from one of The Voice of Wrestling, during WWE's most successful and turbulent times. Jim Ross was front row as the Sports Entertainment behemoth went from losing money to becoming a multi-billion dollar company. Not only an entertaining read about the inner workings of WWE, but J.R.'s story is also about constant reinvention, entrepreneurism, and fighting against stereotypes of regional bias, body type ideals in the media, ageism, health setbacks, the challenges associated with Bells palsy (and the aesthetic biases associated with that), and great personal loss-but in a way that is about triumphing against the odds through talent, passion, and persistence"--
  • Ross' ascent in WWE mirrors the rise of professional wrestling itself from a DIY sideshow to a billion-dollar business. Here he dishes about not only his long career, which includes nurturing global stars like Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, and John Cena, but also about the challenges of aging and disability, dealing with Bell's palsy; his split from collaborator Vince McMahon, and the sudden death of his beloved wife, Jan. The result is a gruff, endearing, and remarkably human-scale portrait, set against the larger-than-life backdrop of professional wrestling. -- adapted from jacket
